Killzone 2 Only Using 60% of PlayStation 3 SPU's Overall Power?

Killzone 2 Only Using 60% of PlayStation 3 SPU's Overall Power? 100°
326w ago - Speaking in IGN's latest Play Beyond podcast, Jeff Haynes revealed that even during the heaviest loads, Killzone 2 utilizes roughly only 60 per cent of the PlayStation 3 SPU's.

"It's incredible to see huge levels and see the deferred rendering and note that on all the SPU's, even on the heaviest load were coming up to about 60%," Haynes said.

"They weren't coming close to maxing out. They had about 40% of space before they started tripping or saw slow down on some of the processes."

Furthermore, Haynes noted that the preview codes recently distributed to various media outlets were of an alpha build of the title, and have since been polished up. Visiting Guerilla Games in Amsterdam, Haynes was shown an updated version of the game, mid to late beta, noting that elements such as lighting, cut scenes, glitches, load times, have all been optimized.

Killzone 2 is due out exclusively on PlayStation 3 on February 27, 2009.

X-Play Reveals Killzone 2 Release Date And Two New Weapons! 50°
326w ago - Tonight, X-Play brought you the release date for Killzone 2, the highly-anticipated FPS from Guerrilla Games and Sony!

That date: February 27, 2009 for the United States. There is no word on other territories yet. There were a lot of rumors about the 17th, but it will be 10 days later. Get your pre-orders in!

X-Play also revealed two new weapons: the Bolt Gun and the Flamethrower, which can both be seen in the following video:




The end of the video also sports the official announcement of the release date if you don't believe me!

Below is another Killzone 2 video interview on the game's robust multiplayer component including details about the games innovative "Warzone" gametype!




The "Warzone" gametype, which can be seen in the video, rotates through all the available gametypes as the match plays out. It could start as a team deathmatch game that transitions to a capture & hold game as one team gains a foothold. Score too many points and you could find yourself the target of a VIP assassination game.
 

New Microsoft XBox 360 Model May be the Red Ring Killer

New Microsoft XBox 360 Model May be the Red Ring Killer 200°
326w ago - Reports of the "Jasper" model of the Xbox 360 have been reported to have been in stores since as early as late September, and now a newer report gives us some better details on what to look for, particularly the output voltage on the power brick.

The Jasper chipset is, essentially, supposed to be better in every way, this including the amount of power it requires. So it seems, any 360 made after October 23, 2008 should have the chipset.

My only question is: why the heck wouldn't this be advertised and on the box? I guess if they did that a lot of unsuspecting customers would have suddenly been suspecting, meaning less sales since launch. Still!

VentureBeat reporter and "renowned Microsoft digger" Dean Takahashi has done a write-up on the new model giving us all the details on what to expect, and basically concludes the new model should kill the infamous Red Ring of Death problem.

"We'll see if the systems prove reliable. But logically, they should be a lot better," he writes. Note that Dean was behind the massive six-part series on the thing, so as far...
 

Video: Killzone 2 BETA for PlayStation 3 Weapons Montage

Video: Killzone 2 BETA for PlayStation 3 Weapons Montage 50°
327w ago - With the Killzone 2 Beta coming to a close this Sunday, we've got one more video up our sleeves to show you, this time taking a look at the many weapons available in the game.

Keep in mind, Guerrilla Games has yet to reveal all the weapons that will be available in the final game, so expect a few more surprises over the next few months.

The video below features guns from the beta, showcasing such weapons as the ISA M4 Revolver, ISA M82-G Assault Rifle, and ISA M13 Semi-automatic Combat Shotgun. Also included in the footage are some scene of environmental destructibility, displaying crumbling concrete columns and more. However the video is not very well synced with the audio.





Killzone 2 is due out in February 2009.
